. but despite objections from women's rights groups romney didn't pull this campaign ad. >> i hope you will join me in supporting richard murdoch. this, of course, after freshman house republican joe walsh of illinois insisted there is no such thing as an abortion to protect a woman's life or health because of "advances in science and technology.". and representative todd akin's infamous remark about women's bodies shutting down to prevent pregnancy in cases of so-called "legitimate rape." >> so doctor, are these extreme remarks by republicans distancing themselves from these remarks, are they what are keeping abortion front and center? >> they are actions. they remind women of people trying to redefine rain rape. the words are bad enough. the actions are worse. >> i disagree, bonnie. i think it's to the less advantaged to keep this conversation going. most of them are concerned about the state of the economy and jobs and that's what they are going to the whole thinking about. >> what we know is abortion is the leading topic for women. 39% to 19% to the economy. with the electorate being 56% wom
for romney, all right? i love that. i love that. chris: well, the question is, is mitt romney really wenning or is this a psychological game in which he's getting the democrats to be demoralized while all this talk of him being ahead? >> beats me. usually you have a gut feeling about it. i have no gut feeling about this election. but i will say this. that calling -- that optimism and saying it's a big deal is more -- is more fundamentally american and more optimistic and more positive, i think, and so i would give romney slightly the upper hand on this message rather than saying you got to go out ask vote. chris: you may not like the things you are wut what happens if we lose the election seems to be the message. >> and that people like to go with a winner if he can project himself as winning it's helpful to him. the group of largely male voters that some democrats are concerned about who might switch secretly almost to mitt romney who are looking for an excuse not to vote for barack obama again, who voted for him in 2008 and aren't happy with the way things are going. once somebody else to
certificate on a plane right now with the romney campaign. he called this report for us right before takeoff. >> reporter: two stops down, three more to go today as part of the 72 hour final sprint for mitt romney here in dubuque, iowa there's been a unique opportunity on the campaign plane as we prepare to board for colorado. several of the governor's top advisers are traveling with the campaign today. of course predictions about what will happen on tuesday. there's a sense they are soaking in these final hours of a campaign that many of them have been working on during the course of the last five years. the governor here again offering bipartisan themes. he has tried to draw attention to the president's comments from yesterday in ohio we said not to boo but encouraged voters to vote. saying vote is tfor revenge. romney said vote for love of your country. to give you a sense of where this campaign stands as they look forward, the former governor of utah is traveling one of the first times with the campaign today. he's in charge of what's called the romney readiness pre-transition process as
, the difficulty we have with trade issues right now. that's why mitt romney has laid out a plan to create 12 million american jobs making america more business-friendly and reducing this regulation. >> and yet, the numbers, the at least from chrysler, they felt so compelled about what mitt romney was saying on the campaign trail that they issued a statement to say, not only are they not moving jobs to china, in fact, the company has nuns announced plans to hire an additional 12,000 workers in detroit. that will contradict what you say are concerns about auto workers? >> i don't see it as a contradiction at all. i think it is a testament to american ingeneral new at this time that people move forward to manufacture in this country. epa and government regulators are making it more and more difficult every single day. this is what we hear from so many of our manufacturers, large and small. >> let me really quickly play for you a clip that the president -- from the president's interview with joe and mica over the weekend. >> there's no doubt that the first order of business is to get our deficit
right country. i don't think that's changed much, and i don't think you'll see mr. romney drag it radically to the right. that's not really him. >> we don't know who the real mitt romney is. who he is seems to depend upon who he's talking to, which constituency he aims to please. >> in these days before the election and after sandy, washington is a pretty gloomy place, quite why anyone would want to run this place is a bit of a mystery. but if mr. romney does win it will be precisely because he has capitalized on america's uncharacteristically pessimistic mood, promising a sunnier vision of the future, fueled by conservative faith in lower taxes and less regulation. >> those people in this country who want real change from day one are going to vote for paul ryan and myself, and i need your help. [applause] >> how does america change if mitt romney is president? >> america chances in two significant ways. the first is he does try to do a tax reform that's long overdue. we haven't had a significant tax reform since 1986, and the second is, waste the future of the safety net and t
legislature. so poor women and young women have already had many of their rights taken away. but romney is doing something that has not had a lot of publicity which he has retained the human life amendment which would go around even the supreme court and pass a constitutional amendment saying that the fertilized egg is a person. all right. this is like nationalizing women's bodies. it's insane. and it's the reason that the ultra right has been focusing on state legislators in recent time, they discovered that bombing abortion clinics and murdering doctors was not making them popular. but by focusing on legislatures, they are preparing for a human life amendment which romney supports and then i don't know what to say that he has no such plans, he's really telling two big lies. i've been out there now for a long time and he's telling women two big lies. one, that every one of their children will have a debt of $58,000 from the national debt without telling them that that debt would be bigger if easy elected because he's spending so much more militarily and not taxing rich folks. >> absolu
was full praise for president obama last night. romney did the right thing. romney campaign agreed to not attack the president in the next couple of days, which is very smart politics, if you will, but it's the right thing to do. >> kimberly: he's a gentleman. >> bob: and they both called off the campaign events which is the right thing to do in the effected areas. so far, the politics, i say obviously it benefits to the president. but romney has inserted himself -- >> eric: can i interrupt? this is absolutely going to benefit mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now there is a freeze. bam become can't go -- obama can't go negative and romney can't go negative. if president obama starts showing up at these various places too often, people will say he is pandering. political pandering because these
, but romney aids insisted things are on the right track. >> of course she didn't. of course we are. of course we are on the right wrack. >> stephanie: we feel we are in a very good place and this race is exactly where we wanted to be. and their political director said right now their firewalls are burning. >> firewalls don't burn they prevent burning from getting through. >> i assumed there was a wall of fire. [ mocking laughter ] >> oh, my god. >> stephanie: there has been little movement since his first debate surge. several pollsters are suggesting that mitt romney is claiming the polls are wrong across the board. i imagine mitt romney -- is he still collecting unneeded canned goods at this point? that the red cross -- not specifically we don't need that please don't send that. >> yeah. ♪ there are all kinds of goods, canned goods, vacuum packed on your grocery's shelve ♪ ♪ in the value of the giant douche bag ♪ [ laughter ] >> stephanie: back with sexy liberal aisha tyler next on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: highbrow lowbrow, unibrow. show." ♪ ♪
, if romney actually got on the stump and today and said, not so bad numbers. >> right. >> not so bad. kind of channeling his inner christy. that is never going to happen as he's trying to win the presidency, but he's -- for a minute, ari, the middle of the road guy thing seemed to be working for him, although the longer it goes on the more shamelessly transparent that it seems especially when barbs are thrown with regularity. he did say we are the richest country in the world, but we have one out of six people living in poverty. a point martin luther king made, a point to have wes cornell -- cornell wes and tavis smiley have made. >> smily being the love child. >> barack/christie. >> but they've said that. a lot of poverty advocates talked about that missing from the trail and it's resonate with the clip you made someone in a poor neighborhood hit the hardest that have the least infrastructure to withstand a storm, and then are also often the areas that feel left out from all kinds of government assistance, right? mitt romney is right to raise poverty this week. what's the problem? >> what
kinds of government assistance, right? mitt romney is right to raise poverty this week. what's the problem? >> what's the problem? the problem is, that he's got a lot of plans that would balance the budget and do other bad things on the backs of poor people, right? so the problem isn't at this point, is he saying anything that is broadly appealing or moderate, it's whether people believe it. >> amman, we talk about the numbers here and the economy. it is amazing to me how in so far as there's been a perfect storm in terms of political optics for the president, this week began with him taking on the concerns of those who had been made victims by the storm, helping out those in need. that has dovetailed with the message on the stomach where he's making the fairness argument, the economic argument for his policies wrapped together in a seamless manner. >> yeah. you don't want to be too crass but hurricane sandy has been a political opportunity for the president and to act presidential, to be presidential, and then the embrace by chris christie who gave the keynote speech against
you have no rights we should be grateful we even have a right to vote. if romney gets elect weed are bare foot pregnant back in the kitchen and we can't vote again. >> bill: is that true? >> romney has made it very clear that he has no intention of discussing roe v. wade if he happens to be elected president. >> bill: you took abortion out of there. >> absolutely. >> even though they talk abouten plag. if you are planning then you don't need abortion. >> bill: isn't it interesting that they didn't mention abortion in the end. what they did mention we are looking out for our sons and daughters. >> yes. >> bill: i'm going well, there are fewer of them because of planned parenthood. i'm not zealot i'm trying to figure out the position of this ad i think is to say that president obama looks out for women and the other guy doesn't. >> yes. >> typically in the polls he has faired better when you are asked that question. however, i'm going to go back to my central point which is is women do not vote on a single issue. women, for the most part. run the pocketbook in the family. they buy
legitimate rape and romney where he has danced himself from the far right extremists. that is why this is part of a narrative. >> notice alan's use of passive voice, it was part of a narrative. [ laughter ] >> they are crazy things. there are three far flung events that the media and you are happy to bundle together in one package. maybe it didn't happen. media made me do it. devil made me do it. >> however the immediate jump, this is governor romney's problem. >> including the vice presidential candidate which has this legislation in this candidate that is part of important story. >> or the republican party flat form which is in ink for all to read. >> there was a new ad out for the obama campaign where a young female voter is looking into the camera and urging i guess other female verdicts veordz, if it is your first time. have you seen the ad, judy? bordering on tasteless. >> the issue for the campaign, is it effective. younger people tended to respond well to that ad. >> narrative thing, does jim messina and david plouffe directly want to answer dunham's strange endorsement of
trade surplus at our expense. >> mort, what is the answer? >> the fact is romney is right in this sense. they have consistently for decades kept their currency devalued in order to magnify their exports. sell them at cheaper prices. we have been protest that go for decades. when romney can do anything about that i don't know. but the real question is how do you deal in chin with this way without getting into a trade war which would be damaging to both sides? that is going to take real diplomacy and pressure with china. >> in a trade war, who wins mort? >> we do. we have a trade deficit with them of $300 billion a year. >> you can no more win a trade war than you can win an earthquake. everybody knows that. >> nobody will win in a trade war. but we've got to find some better way of balancing the trade. as pat says we have huge deficits in trade with china for decades and a good part of the reason is not because they have a very low wage cost including for a lot of american products but the fact is they keep their currency low to magnify their exports. >> the u.s. cannot win without china
a pretty good job. chris christie, mitt romney's right-hand buddy, has been out there today saying what a great job he's been doing. >> sure. >> that has to be good for him, doesn't it? >> well, we have to see how the cleanup goes and if obama makes a mistake later on. but i would agree usually in the short run a crisis environment tends to help the incumbent president. and the fact is we only have the short run now, so if there's fallout in the long term then it might occur after he were elected. i still think voters are mostly basing this on the economy. maybe you have 1% of voters who are out there undecided. so it's an interesting event, but look, if romney had it in the cards to win before i'm not sure it would shift things enough against him. >> and also it still comes down to swing states and in many of those what may be more important for candidates is the inability to get to places like ohio in the last few days. >> sure, romney spending time in ohio, and that's where this election comes down to. where the average poll has obama up by 2, 2 1/2, 3 points in ohio. you go back thr
with him. here's the reason why governor romney is gaining among women right now. he is gaining among women. and that's because women care about the economy. women care about the role of government. women care about their children's education. women care about their health care. and more women are living in poverty under this president than any other time in decades. that's why governor romney is winning with women. >> fair point. rachel, one of the things you're seeing, it was tina fey speaking in new york, seem to strike the chord about going beyond abortion, about do you trust women enough to let them make decisions about their own lives. this is how she talked about it. >> if i have to listen to one more gray-faced man with a $2 haircut explain to me what rape is, i'm going to lose my mind. >> frankly, to be fair, the romney campaign is probably thinking the same thing -- i'm going to lose my mind if we have to keep talking about rape in this election. its association with the republican party that he does not want to be associated with. right, but then he picked paul ryan. they have th
in their right mind think that mitt romney isn't going to appoint two, maybe three, supreme court justices if he's elected and that those supreme court justices will have as a litmus test for their being nominated that they are going to overturn roe v. wade? >> you're right on three points, michael is wrong on all three. thank you. we gave you a bad hand to play with. we gave you a couple deuces and -- a bad night for you. you had a bad hand. it wasn't your hand. when we return, some of the incredible pictures and reporting from hurricane sandy. i grew up in on the jersey shore. this is "hardball," the place for politics. [ mother ] you can't leave the table till you finish your vegetables. [ clock ticking ] [ male announcer ] there's a better way... v8 v-fusion. vegetable nutrition they need, fruit taste they love. could've had a v8. or...try kids boxes! that's the sound of car insurance companies these days. here a cheap, there a cheap, everywhere a cheap... you get it. so, what if instead of just a cheap choice, you could make a smart choice? like, esurance for example. they were born online
that i wanted to correct there. he referred to a gallup poll that has mitt romney up a little bit, right? but i don't want people to think well the polls say one thing the markets another. the reason the markets say president obama is going to win because that poll is an outliar and national poll witness be polls in the electoral battleground actually have president obama winning right? >> that's exactly what he was saying. these guys follow lines and sporting events. they were great to let us come in and do this. for me, it was incredibly cool place just to be. what he was saying is that it might seem contradict arery to some when you see that gallop poll. he knows those money guys are following the polls we see at the state level by the way national polls now. the gallop poll is an outliar and one of nine or 10 national polls, the others a different story. >> cenk: the closer we get to election is you guys were alluding to, the more certain the markets become and the more certain polls become. one of the reasons the main reason the polls are not a certainty is because things can change
options of boxes, romney on the right, obama on the left, mr. nuts chose to do his business on the right. apparently it's a stamp of disapproval for the republican hopeful. mr. nuts has a short history of picking losers. owners say he foresaw the defeat of the pittsburgh steelers in super bowl xlv and the patriots the following year. so he has some credibility. >> mr. nuts is two for two. >> there you go. >> we'll see if he's right. who knows. >>> well, the giants good luck charm at the zoo finally got a name. they are going to call him romo. >> perfect. >> like that. >> not mr. nuts. >> no. but the orange headed monkey was born during the nlcs series before the giants even made it to the world series and the team had nothing but success after her birth. she is named romo after giants closer sergio romo. zookeepers say the name fits with the little monkey's personality. >> i want to see the monkey's daddy. a redhead is unusual. >> i'm not part of this conversation. >> that's it for cbs 5 news at noon. captions by: caption colorado comments@captioncolorado.com
's about the economy. and in ohio, both governor kasich and mitt romney are right. governor kasich is right that his policies fundamentally different than obama's, lower taxes, close the budget deficit. make, create a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty. that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go. and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is about republican policies and all the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? it's funny, it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel. we see more economic optimism in the country and yet people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster and you look at the recovery still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> and you see it just in the raw consumer confidence numbe
conditioning. you want rich leather? i'll give you leather. romney is saying you want right wing in the primary? i'll give you that. you want centrist in the election? i'll give you that. and the auto rescue is a good example where he was clearly suggest it and in the debate tried to suggest he was for it and i think it's entirely appropriate that the auto cress cue has been so important to obama running so well in ohio. it's a choice -- either government should just sit by and let the market do its thing or government can come in and correct certain outcomes and prevent catastrophe. that's the kind of choice we face in this election. >> what obama is talking about on the trail, first of all, there's no second-term agenda. when he goes off the record with the "des moines register" last week. he gave out a second-term agenda which is nothing like he's been talking about on the trail. >> that's not true at all. >> the corporate tax rates. talking about weeding out immigration. talking about immigration reform, which he has not talked about much in public and a grand bargain with cutting spending
with the last four years, but aren't sure romney is going to take them in the right direction. this includes working class women, working women, unmarried women. they seem to be among the key voting blocks up for grabs. you will see both candidates trying to reach out. romney not telling people they were wronged four years ago, but they are right to be disappointed. the president telling people look at what we have accomplished and how much more can we do. and then you will see both campaigns on the ground having identified most of their voters and trying to get them out. >> just curious, what do you think president obama -- what do you think of president obama as they are trying to sway his way. at what point does he bring up the, well you remember when president george w bush took off with the sur plus and -- surplus. do people even care at this point? they say i don't care. my wallet is at a deficit. >> i don't know that most people are particularly interested with what the economy is like. is like four or eight years ago. it is exactly as you say. how am i doing now, and how am i going t
. >> bill: all right. james tulman is on the road with mitt romney. we'll talk to him the next hour. and talk to laura bassett from "huffington post" about women's issues in this campaign and then ray stagich will be back. meanwhile our conversation this morning, have we gone too far. wane d says remember bill politicians need to cover their political asses because election day is only eight days away. kevin says go giants, i live near union square and there was a lot of yelling and screaming. i am so happy, but i must confess i'm sorry the win was against detroit. they city could have used a win. barbara from california way early out there says, i think public utilities were smart in shutting things down early. it takes time to get people off of the streets. most of those who could have done something about global warming years ago did not lift hand. oh my gosh this looks amazing! that's a good deal! [ man ] wow! it is so good! [ male announcer ] our new maine stays! 15 entrees under $15 seafood, chicken and more! oo! the tilapia with roasted vegetables! i'm
yesterday. come on. >> cenk: also, if they want to get rid of gridlock, endorsic romney is right. the republicans will do what they want, and then gridlock goes away, but they're not pointing at the people who caused the gridlock in the first place. >> cenk: you're not a plumber. you're not a dentist this is your job. and it sounds like a great idea, let the oil companies run our energy policies, awesome. let's the banks run our financial policies, awesome. no things that are disappointing, and things we can't understand, here is a prediction on what is going to happen on the election. >> the burden of proof is against you that you're going to get re-elected. if the president is sitting at 47% at polls, boy i would be shocked if he won. >> cenk: you would be shocked? we just showed you that he has a 95% chance of having a lead in states that would give him 277 electoral votes. michael, what's wrong with these people? does he understand politics at all. >> i hear what he's saying. i'm not depending him but its surpriseing to see an incumbent president win at 47% in an election. bu
they are not playing politics. >> right. >> he is not standing on ceremony, what a great, great opportunity to show really that they can work together in times of emergency -- >> unlike mitt romney. >> well mitt romney doesn't have any opportunity right now to look presidential. he has nothing to do except for -- >> we're just talking about he is calling these things disaster relief when they are clearly political events. >> exactly. >> obama: i have spoken to all of the governors in all of these states we have pre-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema. hey, don. >> caller: yeah, thanks for taking my call. i have a political strategy for ohio actually a democratic one. but romney is trying to do whatever he can to get any press coverage he can possibly get. t
't think yet is the right >> you know, frankly, if you're mitt romney, you're behind. he's looking at the map and the days left in the campaign and he's thinking i have to do something. >> really? >> i think they felt pressure to get back into campaign mode because they can't cede the week to the president dealing with the response and romney just being silent. i agree with you, i find it in poor taste, but i think they felt that pressure of we're behind. >> the romney campaign said the event where they saw people giving rice krispies and tins of food, and thas an honorable gift of people who are kind and wish to be compassionate, but the romney campaign says that that was a relief rally, not a campaign event. >> well, they say that, but, of course, it was in the same place as the original rally in battleground ohio -- >> a slight problem. >> with the same cast of characters. >> another problem. >> they got the political benefit of releasing the statement saying we're not going to do any campaign events but they said we're going to do this one rally in battleground ohio. >> what's
. romney right now is trying to make himself moderate mitt. he is in the midst of a moderate makeover. if the president is off the campaign trail he has to act very carefully. >> schieffer: minnesota poll out today, "star tribune" has the race within the margin of error in minnesota. now, we've been hearing some of the romney people who said from the beginning that they thought they had a chance in minnesota. the president is still doing well with independent voters out there. but governor romney seems to be closing the gap when it comes to women voters. again we get back, ruth, to this whole deal of what's happening with the women's vote. >> it's certainly true in the swing states the president is ahead in more swing states than governor romney. however, the president's job approval rating and his number in all of these states is below 50%. that is a danger signal. >> that's not true. it's generally 50% or more. >> no, it's not. >> it is. >> >> i'm having flash backs to debates, guys. >> i won't interrupt you, if you don't interrupt me. >> we should get a lawyer to litigate this. >>
recovery while promising big change under of romney-right administration. with more on this, senior fellow for the hoover institute and former chief economic adviser to president george w. bush. welcome back to the show. always great to have you here. >> glad to be with you. gerri: i want to play a little bit of the sounds of our viewers can get a senseof the town. >> short. >> the jobs, where are the 9 million more jobs the esident obama promised his stimulus would have created y. [speaking in native tongue] there in china, mexico, canada, countries that have made the sales more attractive for trepreneurs and business and investment. even as president obama's policies have made it less attractive for them here. thing. gerri: and we have one more jobs report to come. what do you expect? is it going to help romney or the president? >> i don't think it's going to make much difference at all. if you look at the picture that the economy has been traveling through for the past three years now, basically we're in a situaaion where we have continued slow growth. we have growth at about 2 percent
and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey. it's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> talk about a smackdown. yet despite christie -- some can't help but wonder will christie's newfound love for president obama tilt the election obama's way? talkback question for you, will sandy change the election? facebook.com/carolcnn. your responses later this hour. >>> hundreds are rescued in a northern new jersey town. we'll tell you how the city plans to rescue others who are still stranded t
york city mayor rudy giuliani knocking it off right now in preparation for mitt romney's speech. so, of course, with just four days until election day, the romney campaign is looking to fire up its base as well as courting independents. but as "the wall street journal" recently suggested evangelical christians could be the secret voting bloc that puts romney over the top. this from a column by deputy editorial page editor, dan henneger. we welcome century strategy ceo ralph reid, founder and chairman of the faith and freedom coalition. good evening, ralph. ralph, as i understand it, you believe a resurgent evangelical vote can take over ohio, pennsylvania, and wisconsin, three massively important states. >> well, and i would also, larry, add iowa to that mix. and i think it's a big reason why north carolina, which obama carried four years ago, as you know, has moved off the table. i think it's a big reason why the safe betting today in both parties is that florida is moving away from obama. the evangelical vote is 44% of the vote in north carolina. that state is now gone. he was the
submarines. but, really, there was some nicety, right, mr. romney? >> the president was right to up the usage of that technology. i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. i want to underscore the same point that the president made. i supported his action there. i felt the same as the president did. >> i think romney is leaning obama. >> it did not last long? >> we haven't heard an agenda for the president. >> team obama knows full steam ahead. the president went on a two-day battleground blitz this week or, as he calls it -- >> our 48-hour fly around campaign marathon extravaganza. >> speaking of extravaganza, did you hear about donald trump's big, huge, mega game changing bombshell announcement of president obama? yeah, neither did we. he did come out with this -- >> if barack obama opens up and gives his college records and applications and if he gives his passport applications -- >> you get the point. but the president got the last laugh. >> this all dates back to when we were growing up together in kenya. >> and from big hair to big bird. >> i'm glad to be the way i am. >> the ha
campaign. i mean on a lot of different topics right? particularly mitt romney trying to have it both ways or three ways on almost every issue. you never know where he really stands on any issue. the biggest lie of all is this lie in the last couple of days, mitt romney is trying to sell the people of ohio -- it doesn't look like they're buying it. the latest poll shows president obama up five still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this year. it's all due to the auto bailout. it is working and mitt romney, we remember, opposed it.
. this goes right into the romney story we have for you. with the president surveying the storm damage yesterday, mitt romney softened his attacks, not mentioning the president's name even once during three florida rallies. instead the former massachusetts governor emphasized the need for unity amid the national emergency. >> we come together in times like this, and we want to make sure that they have a speedy and quick recovery from their financial and in many cases personal loss. now, people coming together is what's also going to happen, i believe, on november 7th. >> so, i mean, i actually -- i don't know how much it would hurt to go further and say that the president's doing a good job. this is sort of like a foreign policy crisis where you don't step in it, and you actually maybe even step aside. i think that could be a sign of leadership as well. but he's certainly not hurting himself by going out there and awkwardly campaigning as if nothing was going on. >> i think that's right, katty. i think mitt romney did the only thing he could do which was to sort of lay low, let the pre

again, paul. >> where do you think this race stands right now? is romney surging as much as the polls appear to make it seem? >> yeah. i think romney is ahead in the race in the national race. i think he is within striking distance of the 270 eelectoral votes he needs, and the areas of the country where he made the greatest gains, when you compare him with the showing of john mccain tw 2008, appears to be a affluent suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with
: look, mitt romney is appeal to go folks right now to folks whose logic is give me something different. the burden is on the president is to say yes but the something different that he's offering is the same george w. bush that was offered in the first place. he does not close the circle. i want to make this point. the adcdos who came out and said you have to raise taxes. does that puncture the balloon of the entirety of the logic of mitt romney. >> it may puncture it if you want to analyze this in logical terms. >> eliot: you're not saying logic is not in politics. >> i don't think it is right now. you may have fired an aide who wrote a speech like that. i think romney is quite wise not to. the banality of what he says is central. he does not want to spell out what he's going to say. we all point out the budget mass isn't this. that's because he doesn't want it to be there. he wants to talk in glowing generalities and allow everyone to allow mitt romney to be whoever they would like him to be. >> eliot: this is vapid by design. >> oh, yes they change the law and make the crimes legal.
and to be quite honest we can't tell you whoa's right but tonight we'll lie out the choices. mitt romney looking presidential in a blue suit and teleprompter told thousands of supporters, the next four days count. >> the only things that stand between us in some of the best years we've known is lack of leadership. and that's why we have elections after off. this tuesday is the moment to look into the future and imagine what we can do, to put the past four years behind us and start building a new future. >> and barack obama looking presidential yesterday in a bomber jacket in air force one saying romney is not worth the risk. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> let's start by assessing these closing arguments. john, "you know me by know" can work both ways? >> it can work both ways but for this president that's not a bad closing argument. he
that movement of independents to romney, if that's right and a big switch from 2008, why doesn't romney have a more comfortable lead at least 2 or 3 points in these polls? >> 90% of the disagreement in the polls right now, paul, involves differing assumptions about the makeup of the electorate. if we have an electorate that looks like 2004, with equal numbers of democrats and republicans turning out, then a double digit lead for romney among independents means he wins comfortably. >> paul: right. >> on the other hand if we have an electorate that looks like 2008 with 7 percentage points more democrats than republicans in the electorate, then that's probably enough to save obama, even if he loses independents by a dozen points. >> well, where-- >> it's all in the makeup. >> paul: where do you think the recognizance electorate is going to turn out? somewhere maybe in between 2004 and 2008? and that would, i guess, make it very close. >> our last poll shows a 4.democratic margin of 35 democrat, 31 republicans. >> so that's right way, halfway between 2004 and 8. >> exactly. but frankly, paul, no
be going 70. people though the rest of the world is not right. the first abate mitt romney proved he can meet -- lead the country. lou: arguably he will change the history with that performance. what can be done by president romney to change the trajectory of this economy with more than a job creation machine? >> number one data piss-off the fiscal cliff. so we don't have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody who realizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way to wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered under this administration. those who don't have a job and are underemployed giving up then we have a grou of ceos speaking up for the multinationals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it -- rejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they come up with this. >> how low do the fine balance? i will take that. remove the tax
, that is in part a disadvantage for president obama, but it's too hard to say right now. >> hogan, governor romney is continuing that cam taken to go forward in states not impacted by hurricane sandy. it was really interesting, joe scarborough and his observations this morning he made on "morning joe." take a listen. >> this was mitt romney's best weekend, and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes, but it's a new dynamic into the race and changes everything with with a week to go. >> let's talk about this. not only could this stall romney's momentum, but it also brings up something that mitt romney was forceful about during the primary debates. he sad voe indicated shutting down team na and letting states handle disaster relief. watching what's taking place with sandy, know we have 12 different states that declared states of emergency and also the district, washington, d.c., does this pose a problem for mitt romney if he gets questioned on his belief about fema and tries to go to some places to look presidential post-sandy, is that an issue for him? >> that's a great point, t
campaigns right now? >> the romney campaign is going back to full-time campaign mode. i think they were in a battleground state today with governor romney but didn't hold a campaign event per se with the relief event that they hold. again, being in ohio obviously has a campaign aspect to it. he's resuming campaigning tomorrow and has a full schedule in florida tomorrow. president plans to tour the disaster areas in new jersey with governor christie tomorrow afternoon, and then i think with that -- there had been some question it was my understanding they were working on this planning. the question was whether new jersey would be ready to receive the security entourage that comes with the president tomorrow or wait until nurse? the fact they're doing it tomorrow indicates the presid t president's campaign schedule is likely to resume thursday. >> anyone that predicted romney would campaign is right. >> more on that later, toure. lower manhattan saw a record storm system last night. a picture is worth a thousand words. this tells that story. we had the last high tide of potential concern
? >> thank goodness. >> that's right, dana. just think for a second. romney has never been ahead. >> sean: he's ahead now. >> in the real clear politics. >> sean: juan, juan, juan. >> colorado, wisconsin. i can keep going. never, ever. >> sean: listen, you can be as delusional if you want. i absolutely like when you live in denial, but here's the reality, dana. romney has florida sewn up, in my opinion. >> oh, my god, come on. >> sean: in virginia the latest poll shows romney ahead. rasmussen shows romney ahead by two in ohio. i would say it's dead even but it's also pennsylvania, wisconsin, it's michigan, and pennsylvania -- minnesota. no matter what they try to say today, there's no way that chicago -- the obama campaign in chicago thought that seven or six days before an election they were going to have to fight in minnesota. they just -- it never entered their mind, and now they're having to do that, and the fancy footwork is very admirable, but i don't think it will -- i don't think it will take them too far. however, the storm i think you'll see president obama's approval rating which h
to be extremely close. i still give the technologically mitt romney. >> sean: all right, governor. i hope we don't have to stay up all night watching ohio -- i love ohio. many friends in cincinnati, dayton and up north. >> right here. of course you are one of them. >> sean: make it an early night for us. >> i'll do my best. >> sean: the white house was quick to release from the bin laden raid and hurricane sandy. where is the photo where four americans died in benghazi. we have breaking news on when the administration received warnings about terrorist flets benghazi that they ig north. then tomorrow night a very special and exclusive interview with one and only clint east wood. he joins me to discuss governor mitt romney. benghazi cover-up and why this will be most important election of our time. that is tomorrow night. clint eastwood plus we are launching a brand-new feature to enhance the hannity viewing experience. details in just 30 seconds. just no fun to drive. now, here's one that will make you feel alive. meet the five-passenger ford c-max hybrid. c-max says ha. c-max says wheeee. which
to move in the right direction for governor romney and his mislead skyrocketing in crucial battleground states. we begin with the commonwealth of virginia where mitt romney is leading the president by a whopping 21 points with independents. in florida he is outpacing there by 5 percentage points and in battle state of ohio, independent voted stronger, 49% and obama is trailing 43. so will the independent vote hold the keys to the white house. here to tell us is scott rasmussen. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> sean: let's go to first of all, 52-47 the battleground poll or your poll which today is two or three for romney. >> president has been around 47% ever since the first debate. president is trailing consistently among ins. different polls assign independents different ways but we see the independent voters leaning in romney's direction. >> sean: you and gallup, i watch you guys the most. we have battleground which i think is a credible poll. they have him up by five. it stayed that way for a while. do you see it going into election day? >> yes. the race changed after the if y
at this point? mitt romney isn't going to take back his endorsement right? >> right. romney isn't going to take back -- i love the way, it is like we disagree on this one thing but otherwise he's good to go. and i think this is -- this is their desperate last attempt to try to get the senate. no matter what happens at the presidential race. they were hoping they were going to get the senate. that's been sort of raped away. >> oh, god! [ buzzer ] >> oh, boy. >> stephanie: i outrooted you saturday night. i said to the rapey republicans i wanted to say one thing i wouldn't [ bleep ] them with ann coulter's so they should just drink a big cup of fu. any lead romney has is because people are comfortable are racism. the virtual disappearance of the race factor belies the obvious stench of it floating just below the surface. to me, rude, it is not just below the surface. when you're looking just last week at what sarah palin said, john sununu, right? >> yeah. i mean sarah palin you know, we expect that from her. again, who
to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. charles: all right guys, ford didn't take a bailout and amazing numbers, general motors in the meantime, losing market share, bogged down by the volt, bogged down by a pension, bogged down by government interference, i don't know. >> all of solvable exception the pension problem. they didn't go through a regular structured bankruptcy which is what romney said they could do. yeah, but governor romney there was no private finance, remember the financial markets were collapsing and yet if you read his op-ed and i did the other way, 2008 op-ed put it in restructured bankruptcy and then have government-- >> as a back stop. >> a lot of conservatives don't like that, but you can see what he was talking about. charles: it would have worked, i agree. >> and what's key tt bankruptcy, it would have lowered their labor costs and would have been a requirement in the bankruptcy they're at $80 an hour and now at 60 when the competition is 40. ford is doing better versus what chrysler is doing. look what happened with chrysler, they'r
swing for independents in favor of romney. it happened right after the first debate if denver. 51-39%. they will have more detail out of the npr public tomorrow. it can tell you this. guess what? tomorrow in his column, karl rove in the "wall street journal" column, he will make prediction on the election turn-out. >> bob: i'll be awake all night waiting for that. >> dana: a lot of peel might be. >> bob: they may. be surprised if it's anything but romney. >> dana: but he will give his numbers, the prediction. >> eric: did you go yet? >> greg: no. >> dana: you did. i thought you gave your phrase. >> greg: no. >> dana: please go. >> greg: forget it. >> dana: we have time. >> greg: i want to make a point, again, i want to go to the hurricane, the hurricane a lot of people on the left are using the hurricane to mock libertarian values. they believe somehow you cannot deal with this issue without big government. not just a straw man. it's wicker man. i can't put out four-alarm fire but i can make decisions about birth control and free speech. the debate is not about big government vers
and they normally do. >> andrea: who leads with senior citizens? mitt romney leads. >> bob: right. >> andrea: independent and women. 3-point turnout advantage this time around swayed ten points to -- >> bob: you are taking something on election day when they did the count and doing seven things out. >> andrea: same exact date. 'canes is a political roundup, can we get to eric? >> eric: obama campaign, my opinion is in shambles. look what david axelrod had to do this morning. >> i will come on morning jo and shave off my mustache for 440 year if we lose any of the three states. with we lose michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania you shave it off? >> on the show? >> yes. >> eric: just to point out, those states narrowed dramatically. some were double digit leads for obama. now within 3 to 4% for obama. what states just come through. i beg you. >> dana: it's amazing thing to think somebody had a mustache for 40 years. that is a long time. his wife might not have met him. >> greg: you know what is thereunder? >> dana: i don't want to know. >> greg: tattoo. >> andrea: also had mustache for a long time
in the romney campaign. all right. context here, you understand. publicly the romney campaign is on their we're going to win tour. their pay no attention to the polls tour. the, we're even going to win pennsylvania tour. that's what they're saying publicly. that's their public message. meanwhile the associated press publishes a story that's eerily similar to "the new york times" piece from 2008 about sarah palin's post-election defeat plan. this time, of course, it's paul ryan whose post-election future is being leaked about by his supporters who are fairly, clearly, assuming that romney and ryan are about to lose, and they need to think of something else for paul ryan to do because he's not going to be busy as vice president. quote, publicly ryan and his closest allies maintain that momentum is behind the romney/ryan ticket but ryan's biggest boosters realize he probably can write his own ticket, win or lose, on november 6th, this ryan allies spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private proposals they were preparing for him. if romney loses, ryan will be seen as a leading white ho

overall plan. and more on the pamphlet later. and is governor romney's call right or wrong? i'm brenda buttner, it's bulls and bears. we've got gary b smith. tobin smith. jonas max ferris along with tim la camp and steve murphy, welcome, everybody. okay. the folks at forbes will tackle the pamphlet plan in one hour, fair and balanced. what about the plan to overhaul the tax code. what is it going to mean for jobs. >> i think it's going to be great for jobs. overhauling the taxes is the thing that the governor and hopefully president romney can do. and incents, if that's a word, every individual and corporation out there. provides a path of what they're going to do, what they're going to pay and if it's simplified and overhauled, it will get rid of hopefully a lot of the special interests, which takes the government out of the intervention and provides a clear playing field for everyone. this could turn around our economy, if done soon and done right. >> brenda: jonas, we don't know exactly what kind of overhaul we would get and isn't that adding uncertainty? wouldn't that keep people f
. >> erin mcpike, i understand you're in ohio right now. governor romney joined congressman ryan on the bus tour, you wrote that the race might not just boil down to the buckeye state. we've all been talking about that. buff it may boil down to two counties, hamilton county and cuyahoga county. give me the rationale behind that? >> cuyahoga county is where cleveland is, the most populous county in the state. we've got over a million people there and about 900,000 voters there. now, president obama won cuyahoga county over john mccain in 2008 by a larger number of voters than he won the entire state of ohio in 2008. they really want to drive up their numbers there and hold their own in hamilton county where i am now in cincinnati, president obama won hamilton county in 2008. but in the 2010 governors erase, ted strickland, a democrat narrowly lost the county to john kasic, the governor there now. you're seeing the most voters in these two counties. that's really important to them. the obama campaign in ohio is telling me they're just basically worried about snow in cleveland on election day
, governor romney does not have a full-time job right now. the president does. what do you do? i mean, you're here. you overcampaign, you could look crass and out of touch. this is, i would say, a trickier situation. the president's got something to do. mitt romney does not. >> you campaign sensitively. i don't think you give up the days. i think you campaign sensitively. i think he's caught the right tone on the campaign trail. you know, this is going to impact greatly, in ohio and some of those states out there, you can keep an eye on what's going on with the hurricane, make sure that there's no great loss of life. i mean, so far, thank god, there's not been any incredible loss of life or drama like there was with katrina. i don't think this is going to be quite that dramatic a storm, and i don't think you hang up your cleats and just watch. i think you do what you've got to do. but you just be sensitive to it. >> dee dee, you were on bill clinton's campaign during hurricane andrew, and you were in that awkward position where you're running against a guy that runs the government. you guy
they talked about was iowa, wisconsin and ohio. right now their fire wall is burning. >> that's the romney campaign's political director, three states mentioned wisconsin, ohio, iowa. the same three states that the president has decided to visit on his last day before the election. how worried is the obama campaign about those states? >> well, i think they've been worried of all of those states because they are very close even though the polls shows obama slightly ahead by no means a safe margin. he does not have a strong lead anywhere. i think the romney campaign is really worried about ohio and that's why they suddenly turned up their visits in advertising in pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, states they don't have much of a chance to carry but they need ohio insurance because so far even if the lead is very small ohio is looking pretty good for the president. >> you know, i'm glad bill brought that up because i was going to get to that in just a few minutes. ohio, governor romney hasn't led in a major poll in that state. right now you take an average of all the polls that look at the b
final weekend with all the candidates and their surrogates out in full force right now. mitt romney just wrapped up an event end dubuque, iowa a state where most polls gives the president a narrow lead. paul ryan wind ul up a rally in pennsylvania where the romney campaign is trying to make a late pushed. the combined events of mitt romney and paul ryan will give the campaign in seven different states today. the president also had a whirlwind schedule today going to iowa, ohio, virginia, going to wisconsin as well today. vice president joe biden has two events in colorado, one outside denver, the other in pueblo. the candidates are also taking the fight to the printed page today with duelling op-eds in the "wall street journal." meanwhile back in d.c. this morning president obama at fema headquarters where he met with officials and talked about disaster relief in the wake of hurricane sandy. >> our hearts continue to go out to those families who have been affected and have lost loved ones. that's obviously heartbreaking. but i'm confident that we can continue to make progress as long as
predicting 53/47 win for governor romney. stef snee cutter maintaining confidence right now. who's bluffing right now? >> both are bluffing. because no one knows at this point. what we do know is that the trends of the last few weeks favor mr. romney. the question is, what will interrupt that trend if anything? who knows? >> the question is, andrew sullivan, has the trend already been interrupted? some signs that romney's momentum peaked last week. ohio poll actually stopped polling tuesday night. >> for the last three weeks, the swing state polls haven't changed. they were the same three weeks ago. the bumps that obama got from the second debate has stabilized. unless you know you're right, unless this abc news poll in ohio, which to me is really stark news. >> you mean the ohio poll. >> that changes the equation. the last three weeks, look at all of the swing state polls, everything in them, it's been the same race. for three weeks. >> nicolle wallace, that first debate clearly changed the narrative of this race. >> it served as a light coming on. casting mitt romney in a rather durable w
with you, richard. the president leads by six points in ohio right now. do you think mitt romney can close that gap with just three days left? >> well, he might be able to close it by a point or two but not enough. when you've got an incumbent on the last weekend cracking 50 points it's extremely hard. and frankly down heartening for the romney folks to try and overcome that. you really have to come to it with a different perspective in the sense that the polls are all wrong, they've got the makeup of the electorate wrong. and frankly i heard the same things from the kerry campaign in 2004. you know what, when you get one or two polls in your favor and you think you've overcome every adversity before now, then you try and discount reality. ed the reality is, poll after poll after poll in ohio has put the president ahead and not by one or two points, by a handful of points which is really about the margin of error >> yes. perry, here's another way to look at this in terms of early vote versus day of. the president is winning over the early voters there in the buckeye state by about 25 point
